These last two weeks of co-op, our kids got to do something really special. I had never been on any major service project before, so our Co-leader planned a really good one. The kids had the honor of making Christmas cards and learning Christmas carols to share with the service men and women at our local veterans hospital. It was amazing to see both the faces of the vets and the faces of the children light up as they greeted each other. All ages from one year old to 12 years old were able to greet a vet face to face and give them a card. I had no idea how such a simple thing on our part could have such a powerful impact on all of us. I am so thankful to the teachers that planned and facilitated this project. It was great! I hope we get to do it again next year!
